When Mary Moore and her partners opened the specialty store in Dahlgren on July 23 of last year, she envisioned appealing to clientele who were looking for something more than the same-old-same-old items found in most gift shops. Her store, Ribbons & Bow Ties, offers specialty items for gift giving, as well as
What lady wouldn’t love to receive a Vera Bradley handbag or a Charlie Paige dress or other fashion accessory? Gentlemen receiving the gift of a custom-made bowtie would never forget the thoughtfulness of the giver.
For collectors of all ages, there are handmade stained glass pieces, paintings by local artist Beverly Baynes, Lolita glassware, and for the kids, there are handcrafted sock animals. With more than can be listed here, there is truly something for everyone.
For her first anniversary celebration, Mary is going all out. She’ll have a wine tasting from Ingleside Vineyards, and the Ice Cream Nook will be there with their sweet confections. Listen to your local radio station B101.5 and 95.9 for details and you don’t want to miss your chance for the drawing for a free Vera Bradley handbag during the event.
Ribbons & Bowties is located at 4593 James Madison Pkwy in Dahlgren, VA. The special event will be held on Tuesday, July 23, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call Mary or Kay at 540-644-9424.
